Trivia

The helicopter seen in the opening credits was a real police helicopter at the time the show was produced. It was an Aerospatiale SA.365C1 Dauphin 2 that belonged to Victoria Police from 1979 and was decommissioned in 2001. It's dramatic, high-performance takeoff was achieved by having only the pilot on board, making it nose-heavy and light. The pilot was a real police pilot. The helicopter, registered VH-PVF, was stripped of valuable parts and in 2013 is in New South Wales where it is being restored by a private owner for static display. See more »

User Reviews

A series which is full of action fun.
23 October 1999 | by yayasSee all my reviews

It attempts to portray the life of Melburnian detectives by presenting some classic actions like chasing and shooting scenes. Some of them are very creative, though. You can't find these scenes in any other action series. The three main characters play very well.
